Re: [RC] BCAA'S??? - Jody Rogers-Buttram

OH...ME, ME, ME  !!!!!
Not only am I am the Vettec Queen, but the BCAA's queen as well.  Angie says I just like to spend money.    I only use the paste form that you buy in a tube....mine come from Dr. Barney Fleming.  Not cheap.  $10 a tube.  You HAVE to give the entire tube at one time...so $10 a dose.  I don't use them except at rides, mostly on 100's.  The first time we used them was at the OD...the first one we did.  LOVED the result.  It will make you horse eat like a pig, and hold up better all the way around.  I give them at the start, and every vet check.  None when they finish.  For the average 100....it will cost you about $60 per horse.
PS.  I have used them on tough 50's or ones that Cash was going to be going fast through.

Anyone using them?? ( Branch Chain Amino Acids)
 Notice any difference?
Are you using them a) just for competition or b) supplement daily, if supplementing daily does that change as your horse's conditioning schedule changes????
During a 50  mile competition do you just do a dose before the ride and after or during it as well? What about 100??
